Becoming Barefoot STrong

The decision to become a Barefootrx® Specialist is the first step towards joining our community of in-demand health and fitness professionals from around the world who have a solid understanding of foot function and barefoot science as it relates to rehab and injury prevention.

movement specialists

With the foot as the foundation to human movement, many movement dysfunctions treated by movement specialists integrate the foot.

By understanding and implementing barefoot science and From the Ground Up™ corrective exercise techniques, movement specialists will be able to confidently address all movement dysfunctions.

Physical Therapists, podiatrists & chiropractors

Evidence supports corrective exercise techniques using barefoot training as a powerful aid for patients with ACL injuries, low back pain, ankle instability, SI joint dysfunction, hip labrum injuries and several other lower extremely imbalances.

Explore how barefoot science and From the Ground Up™ rehab can enhance the timing of muscle activation patterns and how this directly relates to the prevention of hip, knee and foot injuries.

Barefootrx® Specialist Level 1  |  14 hours

As the foundation to all EBFA education the BarefootRx® Specialist Level 1 Certification sets the foundation for advanced concepts in proprioceptive science, reflexive stabilization and fascial integration as it relates to injury prevention and patient rehab.

With the foot as the only contact point between the body and the ground, this complex structure plays a critical role in the way in which our body stabilizes and reacts during any closed chain movement and therefore must be integrated into all patient rehab programming.

In this Level 1 Certification get ready to explore the human foot from a neuromuscular, biomechanical and integrated perspective. The application and integration of BarefootRx® Rehab concepts far exceeds that of simple foot related injury but rather apply to every aspect of human movement, rehab and injury prevention.

Learn concepts including:

  • Foot to core sequencing via pre-activation responses and somatosensory stimulation
  • Biomechanical influences which impact reflexive stabilization of the foot
  • Open chain and closed chain foot assessments
  • Foot function via fascial lines and fascial tensegrity
  • plus more


BarefootBarefootrx® Specialist Level 2  |  14 hours

Further challenge your concept of from the ground up rehab and foot to core sequencing with the BarefootRx® Level 2 Certification. In this Level 2 Certification we will expand the concept of from the ground up reflexive stabilization with the transfer of impact forces and movement efficiency as it relates to human locomotion.

All attendees will learn how the foot and nervous system must be developed to anticipate the ground and impact forces associated with dynamic movement. Learn the evolution of human locomotion, how this subconscious movement pattern is the baseline to functional movement and is a powerful tool for all professionals assessment toobox.

Learn concepts including:

  • Advanced foot biomechanics and fascial line function
  • Phases of the walking gait cycle and gait assessment
  • Lumbar lordosis and the spinal engine in locomotion
  • Evolution of human foot adn bipedalism
  • plus more


Completing the BRx Program was like opening a whole new window into the world of human movement. Ever since BRx, I have become an avid observer of the feet and ankles and understand the foot type can have a big impact on the risks and benefits of different exercise prescriptions.

I would highly recommend Dr Emily’s barefoot training courses to any health and fitness professional. I learnt a huge amount about integrated foot biomechanics and how the foot can have a global effect on how the rest of the body functions. I have found the content immediately applicable to my chiropractic practice and have been getting great results with patients who have started using the barefoot exercises in their pre/rehabs. Thanks QPEC for bringing such a great presenter to Brisbane.
